Re: AE3D EXPORT - AE scene to Maya, Max, and Lightwave

Hey guys, it's been quite a few months since I've done some scripting, so I've been away from from this site for a while. Theoreon, psyshow, thank you very much for the praise, it's great to hear.

Re: AE3D EXPORT - AE scene to Maya, Max, and Lightwave

Hey Ctalkerx: This is correct. In AE Y is up, and in MAX Y is up too, but is rotated 90 degrees. The default orientation in MAX is looking down on the horizontal grid. I decided not to change that. In a future version I might add the option to rotate everything 90 degrees, but the math is quite tric...

Re: AE3D EXPORT - AE scene to Maya, Max, and Lightwave

Hey Russ, I looked at your project. I got some errors with the second .ma file, and the model wasn't there (not sure if it's in the scene file. Doesn't appear to be...but I'm still an inexperienced Maya user). As far as I can tell the locator matched the anchor point in AE perfectly. This is what I ...

Re: AE3D EXPORT - AE scene to Maya, Max, and Lightwave

The script uses the position information, which is the position of the anchor point. It does not use the centre of the layer, if that's what you are asking. It treats all kinds of layers the same way, with a few special rules for lights and cameras (surprisingly, even audio layers have position info...
